I’m honored to be joining in on the Frock tour. Cotton + Steel has come out with an all rayon collection called Frock. There are 8 prints total and I had such a hard time deciding which one to pick!
Lisette 2246 (view B) was on my ‘to sew’ list for a long time (Lisette is a sister company of Oliver + S). I can’t even remember how long ago I had gotten the pattern. But when Cotton + Steel asked about sewing something with Frock, I knew I had a perfect pair.
I love rayon, it’s the most comfortable fabric to wear (besides a t-shirt!) and still look amazing in. The fabric flows and drapes so nicely and it really moves with your body. I’ve made a couple tops (tank and blouse) with it already and knew anything I made would be something I would wear. I’ve been trying to be really intentional about what fabrics I pick and what types of garments I sew. Lately, that means not a lot of garments being made. Going through my closet, I’ve become more aware of sewing clothes that I will wear, instead of ones that just look pretty or that I would hope I would wear.
This dress is fairly short, but I think I would wear it with legging/skinny jeans regardless if it was longer or not. I love the shirt tail hem and collar. I would also love to learn how to make adjustments to fit my wide shoulders. Soon I hope! I probably should have made a muslin, but overall I’m really happy. I used the finished garment measurements from the envelope to pick my size. I chose to make a size 10 and I think with a small adjustment to make across my back a little more roomy, I’ll be making another soon.
